The dimensions of these amazing dragons quite modest - only 2-3 centimeters in length, but the pleasure they give their appearance truly immeasurable. Most often blue dragon drifts on the water surface belly up - his shield the blue color blends with water and protects against attacks hungry seabirds. If you wish to see this biological miracle firsthand, here you useful information: their habitat - temperate and tropical waters, and they are likely to notice in the coastal waters of Australia and the United States, when the wind blows the tiny blue dragons closer to shore or altogether thrown on the earth's surface.

It was first discovered in 2007, fishermen caught in Tokyo Bay hitherto not known specimen length of 1.3 meters. Since the appearance, in particular, outstanding tapered protuberance on the face of a shark is very much like the famous character from Japanese folklore - Tengu goblin, and then received an appropriate nickname - tenguzame, which literally translated as "goblin shark." Best known of the existence of 45 copies of this rare species, and the largest of them reaching over 3 meters in length.

For ordinary domestic goat steadfastly stuck reputation animal stupid and certainly not pretty. But that applies to ordinary goat, does not stick with the goat snow. Take a look at this and let a little far from noble, but still very impressive camp. Over meters - the height at the withers, the maximum weight - up to 135 pounds, but due to thick and viscous wool is an animal lives in the mountains looks even more massive. Come to mind associations with luxurious white fur coat, and if summer mountain goat fur special length is different, then the winter and grows hanging merging with snow white fringe.

Teeth of the largest fish family piranhas surprisingly resemble human, albeit far from perfect. They are only arranged in two rows, which automatically increases the bite force several times. By the way, the moving puck is in only the lower jaw, and that she is getting her trump card in a frontal attack.
